Verdict

Plenty in this opening contest are making their debuts over obstacles after achieving very little on the flat, and so they can be ruled out with confidence. Starsky showed promise on his hurdles debut at Wincanton, and it would be disappointing if weren't more competitive this time round. After having a run over obstacles back in May, Arkyn should have improved plenty from that and also be able to feature prominently. However, the vote goes to ADJOURNED whose team are in-form at present, and he can go one better after a highly encouraging hurdles debut when runner-up to a potentially above-average sort.
